  1. Not really

    I mean. yeah, you can install your own virus if you wanted to (for god knows what reason, lol), but you cant get one from online or anything like that.

  2. Yes it can. It has an Operating System and a hard drive. That is basically all you need. However, the virus has to be written specifically for the PS3 OS. Nobody has really hacked the PS3 OS, so right now, you cannot get a virus on the PS3.

    EDIT: Trend Micro is not anti-virus software. It blocks websites with “harmful” information (its designed for kits under 18) and provides malware protection. Viruses and Malware are two completely different things.
